The 2019 GX460 is a larger SUV with a 301-horsepower V8 engine that provides power to a variable six-speed transmission. It has second and third row fold flat seating with leather trimmed seats. Both front and rear seats are heated and very plush and comfortable.
Manufactured by Toyota in Aichi, Japan, the craftsmanship of the interior and exterior are excellent. The design of the GX460 has changed very little from last year’s model.
The 301-horsepower engine has adequate power and averages around 16 miles per gallons of fuel. This is a luxury SUV that has a manufacturer’s suggested list price of $63,555 and additional option of a driver’s support package that includes dynamic radar cruise control, pre-collision system, Mark-Levinson audio, intelligent high-beam headlights and other options around $2,340 for the attractive package.
The comfortable ride is one of the highlights of this vehicle with adaptive variable suspension and an automatic load leveling Kinetic dynamic suspension system. Very comfortable front seating with spacious rear seat leg space along with rear seat temperature controls. The third-row seats can fold down allowing for an even larger rear trunk space like for skis and snowboards.
With the large engine, Torsen limited-slip differential for low-speed four-wheel drive challenges, this is a real all-weather vehicle equipped to match deep snow and off highway trails.
A moonroof rounds out a plush cabin with a heated mahogany steering wheel that feels so good on cold mornings. There are 10 airbags throughout the vehicles for safety.
This is an all-around luxury all-wheel-drive that has held a popular style and design for the past five years. Brand new or older, this model is eye-catching and overall quality for consumers.
